Welcome to the hydrology group

Prof. Dr. Bettina Schaefli took the position as the new Hydrology professor in September 2019. 

The main focuses of the group are advancing understanding of physical hydrological processes including flow paths, reservoirs and discharge at multiple scales, development of new models for improved predictions of hydrological systems, and integration of novel data sources, such as satellite imagery and cutting-edge tracers, into those models and concepts.

The developed methods are relevant across disciplines, for example, for flood prediction, water temperature modelling, and water resource estimation for hydropower or ecosystem protection.
